Monochrome Maniacs: Mexico x 2!

Once again, I failed to do a monochrome last week, so I'm making up for it by posting two this week. These are both from my recent trip to south Texas and Mexico. These are both from the border town of Nuevo Progreso, Mexico.


This is a monument just inside the city limits of Nuevo Progreso.


A shot of the busy city street. There's something of a traffic jam of cars trying to cross the border.

I thought you had posted last week - the Iwo Jima memorial. I have been so preoccupied my time sense is shot.
Good to have you here anyway.
I like the street scene.

The overhead wires seem so out of context with the monument.

Interesting glimpse into a Mexican border town.

surreal in shades of grey.Just like the emotions in our life.

Cool monument. Looking at the bird with a snake in his beak, standing on a cactus, and the cactus perched on top of something or other, I wonder what it all means.
